Voi volete ch’io muoia
E mi date dolor si crud’e forte
Che mi conduce a morte
Ma per veder ne voi così contenta
Mentr’io morir vita diventa
One vedend’ohimè dolente voi
In questa vita poi
Mi vien tanto martire
Ch’ogn’ hor giung’al morire
E così mille volt’il giorno
Per voi moro e, morendo,
In vita torno.
